Exclamation The Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim error

Everytime I try to open The Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim it says : This game is currently unavailable. Please try again annother time.
I already re-installed steam and tried to defragment the cache files but none of those worked.

Please help me?

Try verifying the game cache.

Right click the game in your library>properties>local file>verify game cache.

First, install skyrim. Then do the validation thingy. If that doesn't fix it, then exit steam, right click the application/desktop shortcut and click "Run as Administrator". That should make it work.... (^..^)

Hope I helped.

Hi, your steam could cause the problem. It might work but try and delete your 'clientregistry.blob' and restart steam.

you'll fiind it in. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam

hope I help.
